French Press Coffee Makers

A French Press coffee maker, or press coffee maker is a wonderful and inexpensive addition to any kitchen.  Whether you are a coffee lover, or an occasional drinker, you will no doubt find a French Press coffee maker to be a favored device.  

French Press coffee makers can be found in many shapes sizes and materials, but generally consist of a glass or metal cylinder, a lid, and a plunger.  A French press can be picked up relatively cheaply, and buying online will ensure the best price and widest selection without running around town.  

Some of the best options are described below:

All Shapes and Sizes

Coffee presses can be found in all shapes and sizes, no matter what you're looking for, your sure to find a press for you.

Bodum 3-Cup Coffee Press

The bodum Chambord 3-Cup Coffee Press is the most typical press that you will find.  This is a good quality press that includes a glass cylinder and a lid and plunger made of a metal and plastic.  

The entire press is dishwasher safe, and the glass cylinder is very easy to clean.  

The sturdiness of this press is apparent when you handle it, and if something should happen, one advantage with the presses from Bodum is that replacement parts are available.

LaCafetiere Pura Ceramic Press

This ceramic Coffee Press from LaCafetiere is unique a great press if you're looking for something a little more unique.  The press is made of Ceramic rather than glass, because of this, you have a few more options in terms of style.  This press is available in six different colors, so you're sure to find one that suits you.

Even though this Coffee Press is ceramic, it is still very easy to clean, and as with the Bodum, all parts are dishwasher safe.  

Another difference between this press and the previously mentioned, is that this press is designed to make 8-cups, making it a larger press and more suitable for the avid drinker, or a home where more than one person drink coffee.  

AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

The AeroPress is a different take on a traditional Coffee Press.  This press is designed to allow you to make both an american cup of coffee, but also using a micro filter, you can press espresso.  

Some of the key features of this press include: 

  • Unique immersion process allows for very rich flavor
  • Not dishwasher safe, but easy rinse plunger, and disposable filter for espresso
  • Micro filtered coffee ensure highest purity and fewest particles of any coffee
While the AeroPress is not your traditional Coffee Press, it does give you some added functionality.  That combined with the great low price, make this a very interesting product.

Frieling Stainless-Steel French Press

The Frieling Stainless-Steel 35-Ounce French Press is an excellent example of perfect refinement of an already outstanding product.  

This press makes 35 ounces of coffee, making it one of the larger presses.  It is also the only stainless press taht we have looked at.  The advantage here is that Frieling has successfully circumvented the problem of a breakable glass carafe, without sacrificing the looks.

This press is a bit more expensive, however with the looks and the added durability, it is certainly worth the price.
